Olivia Troye, the former Homeland Security and Counterterrorism adviser for Vice President Mike Pence, appeared in a new Republican Voters Against Trump ad to condemn Donald Trump.
In the ad, Troye says that Trump wants unrest in the streets so he can deploy federal forces — which she says Trump is putting in danger.
“He wants people out on the street,” she said. “The president claims to be for law enforcement. He is putting our law enforcement in harm’s way purposefully because he thinks it serves his agenda.”
Troye says the clash between protesters and officers on June 1 in Lafayette Square was the “breaking point” of her two years at the White House.
“Watching someone carry a bible and clear out peaceful protesters in a fairly violent way, as a person of faith, it was a really dark moment,” she said. “That was the moment where I really had to sit down and dig deep and say no matter how hard I work, it doesn’t matter because the president is so disconnected from the reality of the problems across our country.”
